Nope. It's useful all on its lonesome.

I think one would want to use the biggest redzone one
could without hurting performance... the bigger the redzone,
the more bugs one finds. The right value will depend on
the app. 16 is probably a good default, but conformance
tests are tiny, they can probably tolerate huge ones.
